Mail Call - June 16

June 16, 2011

“Hagerstown caller, you claim ‘the Democrats care about the working man.’ Sure, that’s why Obama and the Democrat Congress gave trillions of working people’s tax dollars in bailouts, stimulus, special tax cuts, etc., to greedy, incompetent Wall Street fat cats, banks and bankers, and tax-cheating corporations, and destroyed tens of thousands of working men’s jobs with their fossil-fuel-hating energy policies, and increased the federal limousine fleet by 74 percent. And O’Malley and the Democrat legislature care so much that they reward illegal aliens.”
— Frederick, Md.

“In response to the Smithsburg person who would like to know why you should vote for President Obama again. Well, the president doesn’t lie, he doesn’t cheat, and he doesn’t steal. He’s honest, and he’s doing everything in his power for the good old USA. Now just believe that.”
— Hagerstown

“Instead of giving the veterans a break on the dump fees, they’re adding more to it.”
— Hagerstown

“What about the deadbeat mothers who don’t pay child support who walk away from their kids? Nobody ever says anything or does anything with these women who leave their kids and the fathers are left to take care of it and raise their kids alone. They ought to go after the women just as well as the men.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like to say to the other Hagerstown residents who use the Dual Highway: It’s not a speedway. Please stop getting up on my tail when I’m in the left lane. It’s not a fast lane when it’s on the Dual Highway. When I’ve got to make a left turn, I’m not, I can’t get over in the right lane. Instead, you know, you guys are gonna stay up on my tail until I’m ready to turn. Calm down, people. It’s not a speedway. It’s ... a lot of left turns.”
— Hagerstown

“Regarding all the dilapidated businesses and all, downtown Hagerstown, what they ought to do is rearrange the way they assess property for taxes. There should be two evaluations. One would be the fair market value as it stands today ... the other would be the market value if it were in good repair ... The difference between the two prices would be on what the tax is based. The bigger the difference between the two, the higher the taxes. And that’s the way to get things done.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m watching CNN tonight, and I see where Obama’s worried about the economy. He should’ve worried about that the first year and a half he was in there, instead of passing all those bills down the American people’s throats that really didn’t want them.”
— Williamsport

“When a person applies for a protection order, the courts should also issue a gun with that order. That’s the only protection against someone with murder in their heart.”
— Boonsboro

“The engineer who designed the turns out on Edgewood Drive obviously has not been there between 4 and 6 o’clock in the evening. Now there is only one left-turn lane to go west on the Dual Highway, into Hagerstown. Do you know how much of a backup this is gonna cause at those times of day? This is ridiculous. Weird improvements, that make things worse.”
— Hagerstown
